Skills development is one of four key focus areas of the NFTN. The aim is to facilitate the establishment and delivery of effective, relevant sector skills development interventions. The efficiency, relevance and impact of the NFTN’s efforts, however, is largely dependent on how well we listen to the needs, challenges and requirements of the Foundry Sector. It is, therefore, a high priority to engage with industry and develop a deep understanding of the skills needs, skills shortages and skills priorities of the sector.
In keeping with the intent to determine and respond to confirmed needs and requirements of the Foundry stakeholders, the NFTN is represented on the Skills Development Working Group of the Steel Masterplan Committee and will ensure that the foundry sector priorities are duly considered.
